Whew! Those Impossible essays really get thick. So perhaps a rejoining to a more approachable speaking. But hold on! The ride is just getting fun. I have been interacting through comments and replies with Dave, who writes the blog called "Big Story Guide". Our conversation is quite wonderful, so, just as I used our conversation… Continue reading The Impossible; Part 5. Existence and the Story of Death to Life.
As we move into the process of constructively undoing the presumptions of method that present to us the problem-filled world of reality we all know, for which we recourse to hope, it may be well that you need not venture into that heart of darkness all alone.
